Venezuela’s opposition said on Sunday it will return to Barbados to continue talks with the government of President Nicolas Maduro as part of efforts to resolve the South American nation’s political crisis.
The two sides met in the Caribbean island last week as part of talks being mediated by Norway but returned on Thursday for consultations without announcing a deal.
The communications team for opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized by more than 50 countries as Venezuela’s legitimate leader, said on Twitter the delegation was returning “to achieve change that can end Venezuelans’ suffering.”
The talks will resume just days after two members of Guaido’s security detail were detained for allegedly attempting to sell rifles taken from the National Guard as part of a failed April 30 uprising against Maduro.
Guaido says the opposition will not allow this round of talks to drag out like those in the Dominican Republic that ended unsuccessfully in 2018.
